FBI seeks help in travel agency attack

The FBI on Thursday released photos showing a vehicle of interest in the investigation into an April 27 arson that destroyed a Coral Gables travel agency that arranged trips to Cuba.

I resized one of the FBI photos, above, to try to get a better look at the vehicle.

Vivian Mannerud, owner of Airline Brokers Co., told the Miami Herald:
I feel very confident that the persons responsible will be caught, and it is in their interest to turn themselves in rather than wait for an arrest.
I can't see anyone surrendering to authorities if any of the legacy anti-Castro militants were responsible for the arson. In past cases, some militants have gone to prison rather than snitch.

At the same time, at least some anti-Castro activists I've interviewed have had few if any regrets for past actions. Many hardline activists have expressed frustration over the longevity of the Castro government and the unwillingness of the U.S. government to take more forceful action. Some have told me that socialism has destroyed Cuba and violence is the only way to bring about change.

The culprits may even want like-minded friends and associates to know what they've done because they're proud of it. Word may get around to someone who will report what they know to the authorities.
